I have an eclectic taste in movies as well. I do get drawn to directors or cinemetographers which gives an idea. Christopher Nolan, Danny Boyle, and Ang Lee movies I like (and the pre-fame/breakout works of all of them are fantastic). I like horribly cliche action films and comedies as well. My top guilty pleasures for action films are Conan the Barbarian and Point Break. I do have to see a few romantic comedies every year as well. The only films I don't watch are horror.
For shows, what I wait with bated breath to come out on netflix are Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead, Mad Men, How I Met Your Mother, and Family Guy. When watching TV shows, I do like to talk fairly regularly throughout, so you might have to practice patience if that is a pet peeve.
